Three people have been charged after police were called to a Moray pub to investigate a potential breach of coronavirus rules.
Officers were called to Regent Street in Keith by someone with concerns shortly before 9pm on Sunday.
Police say advice was given to those inside the building about the need to adhere to rules.
However, today it was confirmed that three people had been charged following an alleged fight that followed within the licensed premises.
A 37-year-old man and two women, one aged 36 and another aged 16, will appear at Elgin Sheriff Court at a later date.
